Shoes: All plungers must wear shoes into the water. Bare feet are not allowed for safety reasons. Any old pair of shoes will suffice.
Registration: If you have already registered for the Plunge, you must come to the registration tent between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Plunge Day to receive a wristband and your official Plunge T-shirt. This is also an opportunity for you to hand in any additional funds you’ve raised. Please note, you cannot plunge without a wristband.
Plunge Towne: Please plan to arrive early and enjoy music, food, and fun between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Scott Park.
Plunge Waves: For safety reasons, plungers will enter the water in waves of 75 people. Waves will be designated by the color of your wristband that you receive upon registration. All teams will have the same color wristband. The order of the plunge waves will be posted on event day.
“Too Chicken To Plunge”: Since jumping into a freezing river is not for everyone, participants can choose to register for the event as a "Too Chicken To Plunge" participant. You will receive a special “Too Chicken” plunge shirt and still be a valued member of the Plunge family!
